What makes for great light? Often we look at colourful sunsets and think wow, but did you know that most of the colourful skies are produced by dust, smoke or cloud refracting light through the atmosphere?
In contrasting view to what most realise, the most colourful skies come from air pollution.
There has been plenty of that lately, with much of Australia being effected by dust or smoke and sometimes both.
Canberra was clouded over on Thursday with the approaching mass of dust that swallowed the south east of Australia on Friday.
But we have to see that good in everything, it sure does make for some interesting filtered light for photos.
Whilst I can't do anything about the dust, we can use it to create drama and interest in the next image we take.
